Former Eagle quarterback Nick Foles’ days as a Ram are numbered!

The Los Angeles Rams just stole the Eagles’ idea of trading up in the April 28 NFL draft to get the No. 1 pick.
The Tennessee Titans and Rams shook up the draft world this morning with a blockbuster pre-draft trade that will see the Rams move up to No. 1 overall.
Los Angeles traded the No. 15 overall pick in this draft, two second-round picks (No. 43 overall and No. 45 overall) and a fourth-round pick (No. 114 overall). They also gave up their No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
The Rams also receive a fourth-round pick (No. 113 overall) and sixth-round pick (No. 177 overall) in 2016.
“Being able to acquire six players in the top 76 this year, along with next year when you factor that into it — I am assuming five in the top three rounds — that is 11 players that we can add to this football team that should not only increase our depth, but give us good quality players at all those positions,” Titans general manager Jon Robinson said.
“In the end we thought it was a decision that was best for this football team. It made sense for us to do it, and that’s why we moved on it. We talked to several teams about the pick. There was interest in the pick, and in the end we thought this was the option that made the most sense for us…We think we can really bolster this roster with the picks that we now have.”
